Oh, really? I for one cannot recall ever seeing a version 1.5 of a
novel or a version 2.0 of a magazine article.

Even if there's only one published version, which is not always the
case, revision control can be useful for the development of natural
language texts, of any kind. Why do you think virtually every modern
word processor supports revision tracking?

What word processors do is very different from what tools like CVS do that are designed specifically for computer source code.
